What Data Visualization rules/guidelines do you follow?

As a tableau user/developer you may be aware that data visualization "rules" or "guidelines" play a very important role in conveying information. In other words, it is not just about WHAT data is being visualized, but also HOW it is laid out on the screen/paper.

In light of this, which of the following options defines your approach to data visualization theory/guidelines?

 

Thanks for your participation!
